Savour local specialities and relax in a 15th century old wine cellar


Are you passionate about Italian wine? Can you recognize a good quality olive oil? Would you like to combine two different but very interesting kind of tastings? Here's a proposal for you: you will taste Italian wines and extra virgin olive oils from small producers who work following organic and biodynamic agricultural principles, without using chemicals and respecting nature. The tasting will take place in a special place, a 16th century cellar, now converted into a restaurant. Some selections of natural (chemicals free) cold cuts and local cheeses will be matched to the wines. You will taste 3 different kinds of wines and 3 different olive oils.
